From a recently discovered cigar box full of old photos that used to belong to my grandmother Martha Sims (my dad's mother), here are a few "random scans", all but one from back before my dad met my mother...
My grandmother Martha Sims standing in the kitchen of my grandparents house in a rare color photo in December 1958.
Martha Sims talking on the telephone in December 1959. No idea who the other lady is.
A family cookout outside grandparents house in July 1961.
